Robin van Persie has revealed that he hopes the club will offer him the chance to stay longer than the three years his current deal ties him at the club for.
“I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer,” he said. “I know, and I see people around me, making decisions where I think these guys will look back and say “was that a good one?”. I don’t want that. I want to play as long as possible at the highest level. Last year we got one trophy in four. Now we have to look at it from the opposite side. We have the chance to get five this year. How many do we get out of those five? In my opinion we should be able to win two or three.”
